Max's Amazing Recovery

Max was hit by a car and sustained a severe injury to his front leg, shattering the bone just above his elbow joint. This type of injury often results in amputation, but both Max’s owners and his veterinarian Sarah were determined to save his leg. Sarah’s orthopedic skills were put to the test during a 3 hour surgery in which several metal pins and a frame known as an external skeletal fixator were inserted to hold Max’s bones in position. This frame remained in place for 3 months while Max healed. We are proud to report that Max has made a full recovery and is enjoying life with four good legs.
